Southwest Flash Flood Update

Maroon are flash flood warnings. Amber is a severe thunderstorm warning. The greens are various flood and flash flood watches. I-15 southwest of Las Vegas is under a flash flood warning right now.
Keep in mind that, in the southwest, the rain does not have to fall on the highway. It can fall over the mountains and flow through normally dry washes and then wash out a road.

Over the next few days if you are traveling I-10, I-18, I-40, I-8, I-17 and I-17, please be aware of the potential for flash flooding.
